Today we’ve had a domestic day.
This morning the girls helped empty the washing machine & dishwasher, put away the washing, put away the book pile & put more dishes in the dishwasher.
In amongst all that there were very complicated games involving the train set, roads, cars, the little wooden villages in a bag and of course shopkins!
After lunch we went to do the food shopping and when we came back Beanster helped make tea.
Moo had a go too with the kid friendly knife
she stirred the mince in the pan and added in the veg
Moo helped measure out the gravy
We’ll have them cooking the dinner by themselves before too long
A wee quick bit of wildness this evening. Looking at the bird nest attached to the house opposite and looking closely at a bird feather.
We painted and have given our clay models and stones their first coat of varnish. We will use them to help decorate our wildlife area at the back of our garden.
This morning we took a walk beside the Loch to look at the wildlife and then headed to the Library to get some books. We saw some gorgeous ducklings and Beanster and Moo counted them. We also identified different birds. Beanster threw a few twigs in for a duck to build into it’s nest. She was delighted when it headed straight for them and took them into it’s nest. We also spotted a Fairy cave hidden in a wall!
Today Beanster and Moo were selling the lunch bags they had made at an event in Dunfermline. They, along with their friends, had been busy making their wares to sell. The money they made is going to Hearing Dogs for the Deaf.
After jumping about in puddles and playing outside at the park and in the garden for a few hours, Beanster and her pal H made some sculptures for putting outdoors. Beanster made a chickenpox face, a tornado tile and some pancakes. She then helped me make a snake (with a scarf) and a face with a huge bogey on it’s nose! Ah, the imaginations of 4 year olds.
